More About Vitamin-C Esters

TAUN’s Facial Repair Formula contains Vitamin-C Esters (for natural skin care). These vitamin-C derivatives are products with anti-oxidants and are proven to repair skin by reducing the effects of free radical damage.

“Vitamin C ester is vitamin C with a fatty acid attached to it. It is fat-soluble and rapidly penetrates the skin, being much better absorbed than vitamin C alone. Products containing vitamin C ester, such as ascorbyl palmitate, will be helpful in reducing and preventing skin damage.” Life Extension Magazine

“Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein of the skin. Adding vitamin C to a culture of skin cells (fibroblasts) dramatically increases the synthesis of collagen. Secondly, vitamin C is an antioxidant and can help reduce skin damage caused by free radicals. So, when vitamin C is properly delivered into skin cells, there is a good chance to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.”

“This new evidence suggest that, in addition to ‘mopping up’ free radicals, vitamin C can help remove the DNA damage they form, if they get past the cell’s defences.” Science Daily

“Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage – free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. New research shows that ascorbic acid 2-phosphate, a derivative of vitamin C, not only neutralizes free radicals, but also reverses DNA damage.” Discovery Health

“Magnesuim ascorbyl phosphate is a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C rapidly gaining popularity in skin care. It is nonirritating and more stable than vitamin C. Most importantly, magnesuim ascorbyl phosphate appears to have the same potential as vitamin C to boost skin collagen synthesis but is effective in significantly lower concentrations. Overall, magnesuim ascorbyl phosphate appears to be a better choice than vitamin C for people with sensitive skin and those wishing to avoid any concomitant exfoliating effects.”
